The ugliest little soaker now has matching longies!

Okay, so you all decided it wasn't the ugliest little soaker ever. Anyway, I finished making the sweater sleeves into a pair of longies. Unfortunately, I made the rise too short for my DD. It ended up being around 15.5"-16" and she needs at least 17" in the rise. I am waiting on polymailers, so as soon as they arrive, these will be FFS. I like the way they turned out, too Oh well, I just bought the softest sweater at Goodwill yesterday. I'll make sure I measure better before I cut with this one

Very cute! Hey, I wonder if you could crochet a waistband on? I'd be willing to try it, if you want to send them to me. The length looks good, and they cuff really nice!

I hadn't even thought of that! If the rise were higher, she could probably wear them for quite a while since I can unroll the cuff.
